Early Access puts players first in line to experience all of Master of Orion’s iconic 4X gameplay and more.
This is the modern re-boot of what’s been called one of the most influential and critically acclaimed strategy games ever made. The forerunner of the influential “4X” style, Master of Orion builds on the iconic explore, expand, exploit and exterminate gameplay that the original game pioneered.
This reimagined title has promised to stay true to its legacy, delivering on the promise of deep strategy, hard fought battles, diplomacy, and exploration, all with a healthy dash of humor.
Six diverse races, Mrrshan, Psilon, Bulrathi, Alkari, Human and Sakkra all will be the first races to battle for supremacy of the galaxy, with more to arrive in the near future. There are many paths to victory for explorers in their quest for Orion, such as “Diplomatic”, “Conquest” and “Excellence”, and more on the horizon.
Multiplayer is a big part of the Early Access package with explorers laying down the gauntlet to friends across the world and challenge them to a campaign or embark on their own road to galactic conquest against AI races. Real-time Tactical Battles add a new, immersive dynamic to Master of Orion, letting players take their own, custom-designed fleets to war, where they must use every trick and tactic at their disposal to claim victory.
The launch of Master of Orion grants players the three original Master of Orion titles. Upon the game’s final release later in 2016, a detailed digital art book, soundtrack by original Master of Orion composer, retro pixel ships, and an exclusive race for Collector’s Edition holders: the Terran Khanate become available.
